Pros: Wooded and hilly, it definitely gives you a run for your money and tests all of your best throws. Challenging for sure. No wait on tees, not many people playing it.
Cons: Very challenging. Throw accurately or you'll lose your disc. Only the paths are mowed...not any of the nearby (two-foot-tall) grasses, weeds, and ivies. Many woods; discs easy to get stuck in low trees. Not recommended for a hot day...the grade on the hills is deathly in the heat/humidity. Seems like mud might be a problem, too, but it was dry when I played. There's no map of the course, and the tees/baskets can be difficult to find. I said too often, "Uhh..where next?"
Other Thoughts: Easy to find in West Des Moines. Right across from a middle school and next door to the police station. A cop was even 'nice' enough to circle us as we pulled into the parking lot and wait for us to leave [/sarcasm].

The cons outweigh the pros. I'd say go somewhere else unless you have a disc-spotting/retrieving dog to find your lost discs.
